Overview

Shamwari Private Game Reserve, home to the coveted Big Five, is the area’s original private game reserve and one of the largest in the Eastern Cape. Stretching 25,000 hectares, the conservation initiative offers an award-winning nature experience. Within the reserve itself, Shamwari offers six luxury 5-star lodges.  Be thrilled with daily morning and evening game drives, stopping along the way for teas and coffees in the morning and a glass of your favourite tipple for sundowners in the evening.  There is also the option of game walks and night drives with your experienced guide to help you seek out the famous Big Five and other flora and fauna. 

Offering something different to other reserves, Shamwari also provides some extra facilities that guests can visit during their stay. For example, the reserve’s two Born Free sanctuaries give people the opportunity to view and learn about some of the rescued Big Cats that now make Shamwari their home. There is the chance to get up close and personal with the animals at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Within an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth Airport, this family friendly reserve is the perfect destination for a Safari or equally twinned with a Garden Route road trip.

With a range of five-star lodges, there is something to suit all tastes. For families, Riverdene Family Lodge welcomes children of all ages offering a special kids on safari programme, including a welcome backpack full of goodies including an animal-themed activity book and pencils.  Children are welcomed on game drives from the age of four. The lodges also provide a kids club and outdoor Adventure Centre and babysitting services for younger children.
